Because of Shannon

It was about 4 years ago when I started using cloth.... Shannon was in our Nov2002 group ( a group of women all due in Nov2002) and she was the only one cloth diapering... eventually Myself, Cheryl and Tara all succumbed to the cloth diapering thing and became hooked on them.... That is one of the many things that has made me thankful for knowing Shannon.... I have picked up many things over the last 5 years from everyone in that group.... most of us are still in the group and try to post on a daily basis but at times we all get busy and it may be a few days before we *talk* and catch up. But anyway.... back to the cloth diapering thing... Jacob was cloth diapered from 10 months of age... Jonathan was cloth diapered from birth.... and this baby will be cloth diapered as well. Only thing is, I was done having babies after Jonathan so I did not keep any of my itty bitty cloth diapers! But that just gives me an excuse to start building up my stash for this little one... it makes it so much easier having already cloth diapered two children since I already know what I like and what I don't like! And are you wincing at the thought of cloth?!?!?!? Well let me tell you.... it was nothing like the cloth that our parents and grandparents used many years ago! So I will give you a peek at the stash I have begun building so far for *Journey*.... I am trying to stay gender neutral until we know if we are having a boy or a girl... but it is kind of hard... so for now, here is a little peek of what I have so far!

Always nice to see I've made a lasting impression on someone, even if I'm not on the e-group any longer. :)

Cute diapers. Is that a butterfly kisses AIO I see there in between the tie-dye ones? I think I remember Gaby having one like that.

I am not sure if it is a BK dipe.... it is a fitted though... I will have to check out the brand.

And you are missed in the group still.... we are there if you decide you miss us :)
